LaTeX2RTF handles math reasonably well, and converts equations to 
Word-editable equations.  You can also tell it to convert your 
equations to high-res PNG images.

You want a vector PICT, or else a Windoze-generated EMF; forget about 
it (although I've heard that Keynote will give you the former when it 
exports to PowerPoint).  There have been numerous discussions on the 
OmniGraffle users mailing list about getting PDF graphics to look good 
in Word in print and on-screen, and the only solution presented at the 
moment is a) use a high-res bitmap or b) embed a high-res bitmap in an 
EPS.  It's a shame that Microsoft won't add Quartz graphics support to 
their bloatware Office suite.
